Here they are, in the order by which I believe they could have an impact on your campus this fall:
1. EduBlogs Campus – the least expensive way to set up classroom blogs, websites, and portoflios. If you love open source, you’ll love this.
2. SweatMonkey – free but very professionally done networking site where you can post volunteer opportunities in your community. Students see the opportunities, and sign up. The kicker is that there is an online tracker that administrators can use to track, log, and communicate hours. Provides a portable volunteer portfolio!
3. Squidoo – one of the fastest growing communities on the web. It allows your profs and students to publish on their core ideas and competencies, drive traffic to their own or the school’s blogs…while generating income!
